2011 Volkswagen Jetta TDI: Interior Storage Review
November 30, 2011
One of the few things I didn't like about our departed 2010 GTI was the lack of interior storage. There just weren't many places to put your stuff. That's not an issue with our Jetta, though, as it fares pretty well. Detail photos follow after the jump.
Front seating area: Up here, the Jetta offers a lined front cubby, wide door bins with bottle holders, two cupholders, a medium-sized lined center console bin, a sunglasses holder and a glove box. The glove box isn't very big, though it's two-tiered and has extra coin and pen storage capability.
Rear seating area: In back, it's pretty standard but still useful. The Jetta has rear door bins, a rear map pocket and two cupholders in the fold-down armrest. There are also two small storage slots behind the center console; I'm not sure what one would use them for, but they're there nonetheless. I also noticed the Jetta has two dry-cleaning hooks per side (one below the grab handle and one on the B-pillar).
Overall, I think the Jetta scores pretty well here. In some cases, you can see where the Sonata still holds an advantage.
